What is the Catalonia 5K Race? Eight years ago, we decided to promote a race with a solidarity objective and a direct impact on the wellbeing and quality of life of hundreds of children in Mexico and the Dominican Republic. Five years later, we added Europe as a virtual venue to shorten the distances with runners all over the world. Join us from your home, school, or office!
Thanks to our alliance with different charities and sponsors, today, our #CarreraCatalonia5K is a consolidated fact thanks to the enthusiastic participation of thousands of runners, families and sport lovers. By adding up the kilometres that unite us, we will fulfil the dreams of Mexican children with a disease, we will generate resources to fight cancer in Dominican children, and we will also be able to raise funds to continue supporting the SJD Pediatric Cancer Center in Barcelona.
